Smokey Chipotle and Garlic Sauce

You have to try this!  It goes with almost anything, doesn’t take long at all and will last for weeks.

Ingredients: 50g dried chipotle chillis, 2 garlic cloves, water, black pepper and salt to taste

Preparation time 10 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes.

1 – Slice the chipotles in half length-ways and remove the stems and seeds from the middle. Now place them under a pre-heated grill for no more than a minute on each side until they start to blacken.

2 – Place the chillis in a small saucepan and add water. Bring the pan to a boil, remove the chillis and let them stand in the water for 10 minutes.

3 – Take the chillis out of the pan (preserving the water), and put them in a liquidiser with the garlic, salt and ground pepper. Put enough of the preserved water into the liquidiser to cover the other ingredients and blend until you have a fine paste.

4 – In a pan, put a tablespoon of olive oil and heat. Add the mixture from the blender and cook on a low heat for 10 minutes. Your sauce should now be ready!
